republican fight over funding and the affordable care act continues in texas, with the state's junior senator, ted cruz, leading the charge against the expansion of health care coverage in this country. >> i am publicly committed along with a number of other senators that under no circumstances will i vote for any continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. now, why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever give up his principles, so republicans have to give up theirs? if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink. >> the senior senator from texas disagrees with his junior senator. >> even if you shut down the government, mandatory spending would continue to pay for the implementation of obama care. we're all on the same side when it comes to the objective. there is some difference of opinion as to the viability, or the likelihood of success of this particular tactic. >> a new survey from usa today shows t
why in a minute he's not just another whackadoo. live to dallas, texas, where ted cruz is about to speak in just a moment. see the big defund obama care banner which lets you know what the event is going to be like. also tonight the terrifying prospect that one result of the bankruptcy of the city of detroit could be the thousands of potential personal bankruptcies caused by the slashing of retirees' pensions. a full discussion on that is coming up. all that plus i am absolutely geeking out a little bit over what i think is the coolest car ever. the tesla. i will tell you why it's so cool but also why it's so important. >>> but tonight we begin with a man who i believe is the most dangerous politician on the american right. in october 2007 i sat in the media gallery of the united states supreme court and watched the solicitor general of texas argue on behalf of the state that he should have the ability to put to death a mexican national, jose, who had been convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls in houston. he won that argument and he was executed by texas on august
better than we were and have been for a few yearses now. and yet, today, in texas, another round has just begun of unpaving the roads. seriously. in four counties in south texas, and two counties in west texas, today is the day state started converting paved roads into gravel roads. texas state department of trn transportation made the announcement last month. "since paving roads is too expensive and there's not enough funding to repave them all, our only other option to make them safer is to turn them into gravel roads. t "it's not like they're saying gravel roads are better, figured out grounds on which gravel roads are pleasing or sound, or get the most out of your performance car. those are not artisanal roads. roads in texas are being unpaved because pavement is something we cannot afford there anymore. in this part of texas it's happening because of the "sharp increase in heavy traffic due to the oil boom." the damage related to energy development has become so extensive that state and local authorities lack the funding to make all the repairs. the problem increased heavy equipment
with texas representative waukeen castro and the reverend al sharpton. >>> as the outrage over russia's anti-gay laws continue to grow, we're beginning to get a disturbing picture of what life is like there for its lgbt citizens. my guest tonight is russian, openly gay and about to flee the country. >>> plus, stop and frisk and edward snowden, what do they have in quhcommon? a whole lot more than you might think. >>> we begin on the front lines of voter suppression, with multiple developments across the country, not the least of which is the attorney general of the united states eric holder suing the state of texas, two states suing the federal government back, and a prominent republican lambasting the republican fwo b governor of north carolina over that state's brand new voting requirements. today the justice department announced plans to file a new lawsuit against the state of texas over its voteer i.d. law and intervene as a party in another case involving texas redistricting. attorney general holder said "he will not allow the prime court's recent decision to be interpreted as open sea
. waging hard to get a ban in colorado and virginia. they succeeded in texas. >> he typically is not somebody who has been told no very much. >> reporter: now, meet the man who got him booted out of texas, bill walters. >> he said he could never be successful if he sold through franchise dealers, he never tried it. >> reporter: he invited us to meet him in austin, mainly to prove it is all slicked back dealers and shiny suits. he said that dealers, many of them, are extremely heinous. he called on people who have been screwed over in texas by an auto dealer, saying this is payback time. >> that is just totally wrong. >> reporter: he is also quick to appoi point out that the only thing texas asked him to do was play by the same rules as everybody else. >> this happens all the time, somebody wants an exception to the franchise laws. and our policymakers don't want to make an exception, when this company, tesla, could do better selling through a franchise dealer network of his own cho e choosing, there is no reason to make a change. >> reporter: musk believes the state governmen
in for candy crowley and this is state of the union. >>> today a texas lightning rod. >> if we see a grass roots tsunami, that is going to be cause republicans and democrats to listen to the people. senator ted cruz on why he hopes the wave that carried him into the senate is still strong enough to wash away obamacare. and jim demint and former governor howard dean. >> i think we're going to have another constitutional crisis in terms of the presidency. >>> plus the 50th anniversary of the march on washington. we start with breaking news out of syria this morning. the syrian government has reached an agreement with the united nations to allow inspectors full access to any site of any purported chemical weapons attack. syria's deputy foreign minister says -- the pentagon has prepositioned four warships with armed cruise missiles pore the region. chris, this is big news, this is why obviously inspectors got there, they want to get to the bottom of what really happened. think they can now? >> it is possible, we know that secretary of state john kerry was speaking with his counterpart the fore
was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement. "to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an
is already suing texas to stop its new voter id law and reports say that north carolina's extreme voting restrictions will likely be next in line for attorney general eric holder, who also spoke on saturday. >> we must remember generations who carry themselves on a day-to-day basis with great dignity in the face of unspeakable injustice. but for them, i would not be attorney general of the united states and barack obama would not be president of the united states of america. this struggle must and will go on in the cause of our nation's quest for justice. until every eligible american has the chance to exercise his or her right to vote, unencumbered by discriminatory or unneeded procedures, rules, or practices. >> the thousands who came out this weekend are ready to continue that quest for justice. >> we're on our way to north carolina. we're on our way to texas. we're on our way to florida. and when they ask us for our voter id, take out a photo of medgar evers, take out a photo of goodman, cheney and take out a photo of viola louisa. they gave their lives so we could vote. look at this
in 1978, when don stephens of texas started a charity that he calls mercy ships. so how did you find this ship? >> don stephens: we found her in denmark. she was a rail ferry. >> pelley: "africa mercy" replaced three earlier vessels, and stephens says that, over 35 years, hundreds of thousands of patients have been aboard his ships. where does the money come from? >> stephens: we've got corporate sponsors that we couldn't do what we do without them. secondly, by the crew themselves. we have a unique business model. we charge everyone for the privilege of volunteering. >> pelley: and you pay them nothing? >> stephens: everyone pays their own way. >> pelley: doctors, nurses and crew pay their own way with donations from home, mostly from churches. >> would it be okay if we pray with you? >> pelley: you're often reminded onboard that this is a christian charity... >> chandra: god, you are good. >> parker: we pray for your protection over her. >> and we pray for a complete recovery. >> pelley: ...a charity that treats patients of any faith. >> amen. >> pelley: west africa is a territory
up to 140, and west texas up to 120, if and when the missiles start flowing. i assume the action will take three or four days. i'm not smart enough to know. patrick, would you agree with addison? so.i think i don't know that the spread between brent and west texas would be so significant. it certainly could be, but for the average motorist, i don't as bad as will be what we saw in libya. >>> bars some catastrophe -- >> yes, i think it's a bit better than we thought it would be earlier this year. refining activities slow down, because they're getting ready for them to produce heating oil. so if this becomes a nonevent, it won't be an event for u.s. drivers, either. >>> let's put syria aside, we'll have a thought experiment. why is west texas crude above $100 a barrel. united states is producing more oil. than we have in i don't know how many decades. saudi arabia and the other side, they're producing almost 10 million barrels a day, as far as i know. why are the oil markets this tight, given the fact that the world economy is lousy? >> well, the situation you present, why is west
department announced they were going to sue the state of texas over the voter i.d. law texas republicans put into place after the supreme court decision. a federal court in texas is reviewing the justice department's complaint. while that review goes on, the voter i.d. law in texas is going into effect. there's a fascinating little test case that's going to play out there this week. this is the ballot for a local city council race in the city of edinburg, texas. this tiny local election is going to be the first one in the state that will be held under the state's strict new voter i.d. laws. opponents of the law are planning to watch that election very closely to see what effect this new voter i.d. law has on the ability of minority residents to turn out and vote. the fight is also on right now in north carolina. that state's new voter suppression law is seen as even more draconian than the one passed in texas that the federal government is suing over right now. the north carolina law, and all of the national coverage of that law, has kicked up a wave of opposition in the state. last thursday
was a man without a country. he left seattle and went to texas with that huge contract. he never fit in there, he went to the yankees obviously. he was never considered a real yankee. it wasn't like he had this beloved fan base out there to begin with. in 2009 he admits or confirms a report that he doped when he was younger, but he said it was for a limited time. if anybody felt that they could forgive him then, he's just blown that up now. >> jason, to that point. he's been combative throughout this process. part of the press conference tonight, what was he like throughout it? >> he was really subdued. i mean, there's no other way to say it. he was not combative, at least in this particular outing he was not. he kept saying repeatedly he would be able to say more at a later time. kept saying repeatedly that he didn't want to disrupt the appeals process and wanted that to play out. what i also found interesting was the reaction outside here to rodrigez. i heard you guys talking about the fans. you saw him selling some autographs before the game got underway here tonight.overwhelming
of texas born in calgary, canada. the tea party loves him, given the controversy over mr. obama's birth certificate and speculation cruz is running for president, this probably had to come up eventually. this is the birth certificate. his father born in cuba, his mom in delaware. cruz issued a statement saying, quote, because my mother was a u.s. citizen born in delaware, i was a u.s. citizen by birth. i may technically have dual citizenship. if that's true, i will denounce canadian citizenship, nothing against canada. but i am an american by birth and as a u.s. senator, i believe i should be only an american. a person born outside of the united states and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the united states who resided in the united states. when obama was asked about cruz's eligibility, trump said perhaps not. it came up this morning. >> under no circumstances will i vote for a continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. >> reporter: cruz is a 2016 star already, won a conservative straw poll in denver recently, and this citizenship issue
'm glad the justice department is moving forward in texas. i want them to do that in north carolina and any other state that has put in place these laws that are really going to be damaging to people's right to vote. >> and that's the real point. people have been voting for years with their i.d. there's been no widespread fraud. yet you come in with a new program. it is a solution looking for a problem rather than a problem in need of a solution. and one of the people who just filed a lawsuit other in north carolina's voting suppression law is 92-year-old rosenel eaton who has compared to the literacy test she faced during the crowe era. listen to this 92-year-old. >> here i am at 92 years old doing the same battling. we need more, not less, access to the ballot. at the age of 92, i am fed up and fired up. >> 92 years old saying it's the same thing she's fed up and fired up standing there with reverend william barber. people are calling them out on this. >> that's right. and you know what? i am so proud to be a north carolinian. she really is fed up. >> i think that -- and the thing
'm a u.s. citizen by birth. >> he couldn't be more right. welcome back to "hardball." that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl he is a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz who was born in canada to an american mother has dual citizenship is by the accident of being born up there. following that report he released a statement. he said now the dallas morning news says i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that to be true, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada but i'm an american by birth and a u.s. senator, i believe i should only be an american. well said. i couldn't agree with him more. odd to say in their about a guy i probably disagree with on many points but he could not be more right. the irony here of course, is that cruz's birth mirrors the phony scenario concocted by the birthers including donald trump to falsely have been arguing even to this day that president obama was born overseas mostly in kenya
in texas, senator cruz, in a heated town hall. could an awkward moment be coming for two conservative stars in the lone star state? here in gotham, anthony weiner's wild spiral to single digits may have opened the door for an unexpected contender and maybe the next mayor. bill de blasio. feeling like he's got a lot of mojo with just 20 days till primary day. good morning from new york city. it's wednesday, august 21st. it's "the daily rundown." my first reads of it the mornin. we're going to start with some domestic politics. the state of both political parties is anything but strong these days. the only reason there isn't much hand ringing about the democratic party is because the republican party is the one in such disa ray. the open warfare has become a more public spectacle than we've seen in years. many republican leaders are exhausted from dealing with the tea party and some seem to be downright giddy over what's happened in the last week. they don't put their name on their giddiness. not even 250 days old and already he's become probably among the most recognizable faces of the tea p
. and the department of justice today announced they will sue the state of texas in order to stop texas' voter i.d. law. the justice department says it plans its challenge under the part of the voting rights act that was not gutted by the supreme court earlier this summer. in a statement, attorney general eric holder said this represents the department's latest action to protect voting rights but will not be our last. the federal government is going to wade into texas to stop what texas is going on voter suppression. if the administration says texas won't be the last place that happens, what will be the next place that happens? north carolina's new move s fwes voting rights are called the most radical state-wide changes since the voting rights act was passed in 1965. does north carolina need federal intervention in order to protect its citizens' right to vote in joining us now, congressman g.k. butterfield, represents elizabeth city where we are tonight. he's a former voting rights attorney, himself. former north carolina supreme court justice. congressman butterfield, thank you for being here tonight.
to the clinic in texas but what happened next is anything but routine because janene jones was the nurse on duty. chelsea's mom remembers what happened next, all hell broke loose. >> she gave her her first shot in her left thigh, and she immediately started gasping for air, turned around and gave her another one and she immediately went limp and quit breathing. >> reporter: in the chaos of rushing chelsea from the clinic to the hospital, janene jones somehow slipped into the ambulance and glaave the little girl a third shot. she learned she injected the little girl with something with muscle relax asian and short-term paraalice. later she was convicted and sentenced to 99 years in prison for killing chelsea. plus 60 years for injuring another child who had survived. to this day, she still says she did nothing wrong. >> ms. jones, do you have any reaction at all? anything to say? >> reporter: for chelsea's parents, the verdict was bittersweet. their daughter was gone but it killer would spend the rest of her live behind bars, at least that's what they thought. joan ss scheduled to walk free. she'

gallego, a new democratic member from texas still getting used to that unusual dynamic. >> if you walk in every day and you tell your spouse, "i don't care who your opinion is we're going to do it my way every day, because i'm always right," then your marriage doesn't last very long. it's not much of a marriage. >> reporter: you could say this political marriage is on the rocks. not only does congress have enormous difficulty tackling important challenges like jobs or entitlement reform but it's even struggling, bob, to perform basic duties, like funding the government which is needs to do by next month. >> schieffer: okay, nancy, well, thank you so much. upbeat reports about the economy sent the major stock indexes to an all-time high today. the dow gained 128 points to close at 5,628. that's the 29th record high of the year, and the s&p 500 closed above 1700 for the first time ever. there are more cases of a nasty bug, but the source remains a mystery. your grocery bill is going up because of what's happening down on the farm, and a hungry bear gets some takeout food when the cbs eve

texas, ted cruz, continues his crusade against funding the affordable care act. but texas governor rick perry now wants $100 million of the funding that ted cruz wants to kill. the affordable care act funding and you he wants that directed texas. he claims to be just as opposed as ted cruz is, but now he is looking at obtaining medicaid funding from the affordable care act for texas. and ari melber is shocked, right? you're just stunned. >> it is stunning. the saddest part of the article in"politico," reporting that if this is actually discussed, perry may back out. >> two minutes left in the show. >> so we're not helping. >> let's talk about it, or something else. we're not supposed to discuss it because this will be bad for the people of texas if perry doesn't vote for this medicaid funding. >> and i think republicans, which is sad, they are even aware of it. their argument is yeah, we don't want any money for our people to have this health care. you have money in the program, more than some expected given that republicans claimed they would go against it. and several more, according
, the justice department filed a lawsuit against the state of texas to block that state's voter i.d. law that went in effect a mere hours after the supreme court's decision essentially gutted the -- in a statement here, eric holder said -- we will not allow the supreme court's recent decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights. in fact, within hours of that comment, senator john cornyn of texas, who is one partisan paul, issued his own statement, saying -- facts mean little to a justice department bent on inserting itself into the sovereign affairs of texas and a lame-duck administration in trying to turn our state blue. excuse me, senator. lame duck? we are six months into a four-year presidential term, but that's the way they want us to think, isn't it, clarence? they've been really good at it. make people think that obama is on his way out the door. >> sure. the irony of this is, as was mentioned earlier, while the republicans have put so much attention on voter i.d. they had a problem getting white and blue collar male voters to
